Atlas Camp Call for Speakers suggested topics

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Atlas Camp is Atlassian’s developer conference where the Atlassian developer ecosystem and community come together to learn, inspire, and grow. This year’s event will be in Vienna, Austria for the first time. Atlas Camp will be on 11 – 12 September 2019 at the Messe Wien Exhibition Congress Center.

In case you haven’t heard, you can submit a proposal to speak up until 8 July 2019 23:59 GMT+2. Selected speakers will get free admission to Atlas Camp.

We are continuing to strive to make the content for Atlas Camp the best ever. Here’s what we’re doing:

  1. Once again, we are including members of the developer ecosystem to advise us on the program for Atlas Camp. Christoffer Bromberg of K15t, Maarten Arts of Avisi, and Steffen Opel of Utoolity make up the external program committee for Atlas Camp.
  2. Each track lead has come up with topic suggestions for their track. This was a great exercise in starting to shape their track. They took this list of topics and ran them through the program committee. Their feedback was invaluable in understanding what topics are important and which are not.

I want to speak but I don’t know what to submit

You’re in luck, we’ve put together a list of suggested topics that we feel that would be amazing at Atlas Camp. We wanted to share this list to help you with topics to submit to speak on. Check out the Atlas Camp 2019 – Suggested Topics Trello board with suggested topics in each track.

Trello Board: Atlas Camp 2019 - Suggested Topics

Use the Trello board to see what the track leads are looking for. These are the topics that they are hoping to see when they start reviewing the talk submissions. We’re hoping to inspire you to create a talk that allows you to share your knowledge with the rest of the developer ecosystem.

You’ll notice that there are many talks that only Atlassian can give. For instance, most of the sessions in the Atlassian Platform track should be about features and APIs available from Atlassian. We are openly sharing these topics so that you can consider the program as a whole when creating your
proposal.

Please keep in mind that this topic list is NOT a schedule or even the final list of topics. We’ll determine that in July based on all of your talk submissions. So now is the time to submit your talk for consideration to speak in Vienna in September.

OK, I submitted, now what happens

Awesome, thank you for taking the time to submit. In mid-July, the program committee will meet with the individual track leads to select the talks for each track. This process will go on for a couple of weeks.

Towards the end of July, we’ll send out acceptance emails to the selected speakers. If your talk is accepted we’ll provide you with a free ticket to Atlas Camp. A week after acceptance emails go out we’ll let the rest of the speakers know that their submission was not accepted.

You’ll then work directly with the appropriate track lead in creating your content, slides, and rehearse your talk.

Even if I don’t speak I’m still attending

Great! Don’t forget to get your Atlas Camp ticket before the Super Fan rate expires (save €100). If you’re only able to attend and weren’t selected to speak (or you are not going to submit) you should still review the Trello board. You can use the board to display the value you’d gain in attending Atlas Camp to your manager. Remember you can save €100 by buying your Super Fan ticket.

OK you convinced me

Head on over to the Atlas Camp site to submit your talk or to get your ticket. We hope to see everyone in Vienna in September.
